24 Weeks

Time is going so fast and my belly continues to grow, it is really hard to believe that we are over half way through this pregnancy! At my appointment last week Baby K #2 was doing great! His heart rate continues to be strong around 145bpm and he is a very active little guy...just like his big brother was (and still is!)! My doctor was happy that I finally gained some weight, I am now +4lbs for the entire pregnancy. I am so much bigger at this stage with this baby than I was with Karter so I am surprised that it is only 4lbs, guess my stomach muscles will just never be the same! Dr. TT wanted to do another quick ultrasound to make sure it was a boy (the tech at the 20 week u/s was only 70% sure that she was telling us the correct gender), and as soon as she put the wand to my belly she said "Yep, that is definitely a boy!". Needless to say he was very proud to show off his stuff last week. Now that we are sure our baby is a boy, we just need to go register for a few boyish winter items.

My next appointment is in a few weeks, and at that appointment I will be having my glucose tested. For those of you who haven't heard about this test, you have to drink 20oz of "stuff" that tastes like flat orange soda and then wait an hour and have your blood times! You are also suppose to fast for 12 hours before the test, and silly me scheduled my appointment for 1:30pm. Guess I will be getting up in the middle of the night for a snack!
